Challenges in using the energy saving potential l.jpg
Challenges in using the energy saving potential

Economiccaused by:

  • a surge in energy costs;

  • increase of the energy component in the cost structure of products;

  • lack of investment from the state, and consumers,

  • lack of partnership mechanisms between the state and the private sector in energy saving,

  • high bank rates on loans

  • low paying capacity of consumers

  • poor economic incentives for energy-saving measures;

  • almost a absent funding scheme based on best practices of investments in energy conservation:

    leasing, third party financing, production of energy-saving bonds, etc.

  • poor diversification of fuel and electricity sources

Challenges in using the energy saving potential8 l.jpg
Challenges in using the energy saving potential

  • Informational - dueto the lack of access to databases and the use of information services and energy consulting and auditing companies, manufacturers of energy-efficient and energy-saving equipment.

  • Lack of large-scale information campaigns in the media to raise awareness in all segments of society and the public about the benefits of efficient use of energy and the impact of wasteful consumption and theft.

  • A number of unresolved issues on inter-state level, concerning the formation of common energy market in Central Asia and facilitated access of private enterprises into it.

Challenges in using the energy saving potential9 l.jpg
Challenges in using the energy saving potential

  • Environmental – caused by affecting the environment by energy facilities during the production, recycling, transportation and use of energy by end-users;

  • Scientific and technical problems – connectedwith the reduction in funding of research work in the field of energy efficiency and conservation, low efficiency of the mechanism of scientific and technological developments implementation.

  • Legal - the majority of energy conservation laws are the laws of indirect action, requiring a significant number of regulations.

  • Insufficient introduction of advanced energy efficiency standards, regulations, energy accounting and monitoring.

  • Institutional - due to the persistence of administrative approaches to the management of energy, inadequate authority or an absence of a public body which would be implementing the energy policy.

  • National Programs on Energy Efficiency of Economies for the period up to 2020

Barriers and risks in implementation of energy efficiency concept for speca countries l.jpg
Barriers and risks in implementation of Energy Efficiency Concept for SPECA countries

  • The slow progress of integration processes in resolving water and energy issues, in creation of a single energy market, etc.

  • Disagreement of Parties in the adoption of Inter-state Instruments, prepared by EurAsEC, which could occur at the level of governments in Central Asia at the time of theirconsideration.

  • Disagreements of Parties that may arise during harmonization of regulatory energy frameworks, and in developing the common Concept and the Program for introduction of energy saving and improvement of energy efficiency of economies of Central Asian States

Barriers and risks l.jpg
Barriers and risks Concept for SPECA countries

  • there is no coherent system of interrelated indicators of energy saving, covering all levels of real sector of the economy and services,

  • there are no comparative performance evaluation of energy and other resources saving indices, and therefore there is no criteria saying “What should be saved in the first place”;

  • energy consumption of GDP is not being determined on macroeconomic level, there is no balanced accounting and compilation of indicators between the real economy sectors,

  • energy consumption of production is not being determined at the industry level, its decrease and the satisfaction of growing needs in energy from its saving is not measured,

  • only the norms of decreasing the average rates of energy consumption for the production are set, resulting in a complete exclusion of the structural factor between the products and industries, with the statistical reporting forms covering only a portion of production – the product and technological levels;

  • energy savings from energy-saving measures is not the sole source of all energy savings in material production.

Methods to overcome the barriers l.jpg
Methods to overcome the barriers Concept for SPECA countries

  • There is a need to develop and use a single methodological basis for calculation of energy efficiency measuring indicators and indicators for sustainable energy use and energy saving;

  • There is a need to use all existing possibilities for integration,

  • There is a need to advance in all international conventions, protocols and initiatives on energy efficiency and related environmental aspects;

  • In accordance with the Baku initiative there is a need to focus on the following seven aspects:

  • Strengthening legislative support (base);

  • Increasing the involvement of stakeholders;

  • Development of minimum performance standards;

  • Strengthening institutional support;

  • Providing support for research and development;

  • Dissemination of best working practices;
